Weekend Warrior, June 11 - 13

Summer is here! And ‘tis the season to get out and have some fun. Our Weekend Warrior pick is goin’ to be a fuckin’ great time! So if you can find The Ox (reason one million and one why the El and Broad St. lines should run later), then you should be planted there when Reading Rainbow, Creepoid and Party Photographers hit the stage. You already know The Deli Philly’s recent End of the Year Overall Poll Winner, Reading Rainbow, who combine gorgeous harmonies, raging yet melodic guitar riffs and punchy precise drumbeats to put some serious shakin’ in your bones. Can we still count the number of Creepoid live performances on one hand? Buzz, buzz, buzz…we’re creating some of our own. Check out the review of their debut EP Yellow Life Giver in our CD of the Month section (to the right)! We are definitely digging their live set too. And Party Photographers will give you all the fuzzy walls of sound and feelings of disillusionment that you can handle. As if that wasn’t enough, Miami’s The Jacuzzi Boys will be rockin’ with their beach party enthusiasm to close out the evening. Grab whatever gets you off and head on over to The Ox this Saturday for some fun,fun,fun! ‘Tis the season - remember!?! The Ox, 2nd and Oxford, 8pm, $5, All Ages

Zombie Beach Party w/The Slotcars at The Troc June 11

Ever since Robert Drake, Melissa Torres, and Dave Ghoul organized Philly’s first Zombie Crawl in 2006, it has elevated itself into becoming one of South Street’s most decorated traditions. It became so popular that it led to a second annual happening in the Zombie Prom, that first kicked off on September of 2007 at The Trocadero. Last year the call for a summer event was answered in the form of The Zombie Beach Party, and tonight the legions of the undead are once again ready to raid The Troc in a flesh eating frenzy. While the Terror Behind The Walls make-up crew provides the rotting flesh touches for those who arrive out of costume, Robert Drake and Dave Ghoul will be providing brain eating boogies for zombies to Thriller dance to. And since it wouldn’t be a good beach party without a little surf guitar, and Philly surf punks, The Slotcars,are ready to answer the call of the damned. For a few years, Dave Roller and the ladies X have been breaking out tunes that will make fans of The Ramones and The Queers happy. And songs like “The Slotcars Theme” and “Surfing New Jersey” are perfect for slam dancing in the pale moonlight. The Trocadero, 1003 Arch St., 8pm, $10, 21+ - Bill McThrill

Artist(s) Who Deserve Your Friendship: Cheap Dinosaurs

There was a time when bands would whip out a video game theme song, and it would instantly bring smiles to the audience’s face while it brought them back to all those joyous hours wasted without a care in the world. Then, it became lame because everyone was doing it, and you were forever labeled as one of those “Nintendo bands”. Well, the 8-bit subculture is alive and kickin’, but this is a generation that’s ready to dance and robots are certainly welcomed. Cheap Dinosaurs, solo project by The Fire’s fuzzy-haired sound guy Dino Lionetti, creates hot beats that will get you dancin’ out of any danger that you might encounter through the evening. Just watch out for the magic mushrooms. - Q.D. Tran

The Fleeting Ends Don’t Have Split Ends at M Room June 10

The lamenting, textured indie rockers The Fleeting Ends are performing tonight at the M Room. Apparently battle of the bands are still relevant/hip/in existence(?), and these guys recently won one which has been getting them some more airtime on local stations. They are also hitting the local festival circuit this summer making stops at Philly Folk Fest and Bethlehem Musikfest (hehe - headliners include Lynyrd Skynyrd and Styx). Their songs wallow in jagged guitars and yearning vocals that reach wavering tenor notes and brooding baritones the likes of The Smiths. They float comfortably in the sea of retro that is consuming the Philly scene. We’ll see how that goes. M Room, 15 W. Girard Ave., 9pm, $8, 21+ - Adam G.

Mongrel Mix Mixin' It Up at North Star Bar June 10



Mongrel Mix strive to be a separate beast as they fuse Blues, Rock, Latin, Jazz, and Funk with Afro-Cuban rhythms. You’ll find tracks that take you on journeys through music history with their own twist as you can be dancing to Talking Heads influenced funk one moment and contemplating Springsteen-ish working man folk the next. Their influences maybe “either old or dead”, but Mongrel Mix are working hard to keep their memories alive. North Star Bar, 2639 Poplar St., 9pm, $8, 21+ - H.M. Kauffman
